Get your chintz out.

I bloody love Britishness, today I went to visit Preston Manor but my favourite bit was the gorgeous walled gardens, felt right at home in my own little secret garden fantasy. Check out my gorgeous chintzy kimono which I made this week. I ended up rocking it in a kind of seventies does thirties thing, which I am very much in love with, I am currently adoring a modernised thirties vibe which my kimonos fit right in with. I love the glamour of it, the femininity, darkness and of course the whole late Art Deco vibe.

In other news look what a lovely friend gave me, this vintage pom pom making kit from the seventies I believe, amazing, look out for some interesting results haha!

jeans and a f***ing t shirt.

Look at this! Look at it, my shameful attempt of an outfit for the day. With the uncommitted weather situation as well a massive "I have nothing to wear" day, this is what happened. This! Some people can really rock it, jeans and a t shirt, they look really cool and effortless. But its so weird on me, its like you strip of my vintage dresses and floral madness and what are you left with? However it is good to challenge yourself and have a stylistic change from what your use too, I'm sure todays panic attack outfit will turn into something else entirely in my mind. But right now I have to go to work, in jeans and f***ing t shirt.

God how I love a two piece, with the upcoming #chelseafloralshow advert and a pop up shop at Bimble Bandana festival I've been trying to sew like mad at every opportunity. Today  produced this gorgeous two piece as well as some bleached denim items and customised jackets and waistcoats. Watch the space.
